Creamy korma chicken

Loved by many this super-fast meal is gorgeously creamy, succulent and spicy. Perfect with green salad or steamed vegetables.

Always buy high welfare chicken and treat it as an occasional luxury, the chicken industry is one of the worst for animal cruelty.

I used free range organic fillets here and eat chicken no more than once a month, if that. But when I do eat it I make it good!

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 25 mins

Servings: 2


  • 2 free range organic chicken breasts. I used mini fillets.
  • 90g full fat cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp korma paste
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander plus extra to serve – optional
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 red chilli (seeds removed and thinly sliced)
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • olive oil


Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and place the chicken in an ovenproof dish.

Mix the cream cheese, korma paste and 1 tbsp coriander, if using, with a squeeze of lemon.

Squeeze the remaining lemon over the chicken and spread the curry mix on top. Sprinkle with the chilli, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15 mins.

Remove the chicken from the oven, add the tomatoes then cook for another 10 mins. Check the chicken is cooked through before eating.

Sprinkle with more coriander to serve, if you like it (are you guessing yet that I don’t? :-))

Note: Treat chicken as a luxury rather than a staple. Always buy high welfare chicken, free-range, organic.

Nutrition Info


Chicken is one of the best sources of vitamin B3, otherwise known as niacin. Niacin is vitally important for energy production, changing protein, fat and carbohydrate into usable energy. In particular niacin helps convert starches, stored in the liver and muscles, into energy. It also plays an antioxidant role, helping to stop damaging free radicals from doing their nasty cell-destroying deeds.
